In preparation for the 10th World Water Forum next year, the Ministry of Public Works and People's Housing (MPWH) of the Republic of Indonesia is sending delegation to attend the 6th Cairo Water Week (CWW), scheduled from October 29 to November 2, 2023 in Cairo, Egypt.
Cairo Water Week 6, with the theme "Action on Adaptation for Sustainability," encompasses 72 sessions, including 8 high-level sessions. About 1500 participants from 62 countries took part in this water conference.
The Indonesian delegation, led by M. Dian Almaruf, actively participated in several high-level sessions and also served as featured speaker in a session titled "African: Road to the 10th World Water forum."
Addressing the Water Crisis in Africa
During this significant occasion, the Indonesian delegation outlined the activities and structure of the 10th world Water Forum and extended an invitation to all African nations through their respective ministries to engage in discussions regarding water-related issues in Africa and across global regions.
African countries have expressed their unwavering commitment to supporting the implementation of the 10th World Water Forum through consultations concerning water-related challenges in Africa, with the shared goal of finding practical, collaborative solutions.
According to observations from NASA, climate change and the La Nina Phenomenon in the Pacific Ocean have resulted in widespread drought in numerous regions of Africa. Notably, areas such as Somalia and Ethiopia have endured three consecutive seasons without rainfall.
Consequently, the 10th World water Forum, scheduled to take place in Bali, Indonesia, from May 18 to May 24, 2024, holds immense significance as a platform for global leaders and communities to collectively devise concrete solutions to the global water crisis.
